Dinner was delicious

Aldi has some really yummy microwaveable pork carnitas that I really like. I made them for dinner tonight. For myself I put it on a sun-dried tomato tortilla with salsa, shredded cheese, and sour cream. It was delicious! I gotta get more packs of carnitas. It's such an easy meal on nights when I don't feel good. And it's really worth the price. There's enough for about 3 servings. So good!

Dinner is in the oven

Tonight I'm making cilantro lime chicken for dinner. It smells sooooooo good. I'm doing simple for dinner tonight cuz I am hurting a bit and don't have any spoons to muck about the kitchen. But it's gonna be delicious.

Today was great

We went to my favorite donut shop but we were too late for the donuts I wanted. Turns out they sell out by 8am. So we got chocolate donuts and they were delicious. Then we went to my favorite shop for weekend browsing. Unfortunately the bubble tea shop didn't have any milk tea available so we couldn't get bubble tea. We were really looking forward to it. Then we walked one block to a Mediterranean restaurant I had never been to. Apparently he had wanted to take me there for years. I got a pita pizza. It had red pepper hummus, roasted red pepper, artichoke hearts, and ground lamb. It was delicious. We were so full after lunch. He took me home afterwards. Now I'm just resting. My hips kinda hurt.

I've got a date today

My platonic partner and I are going out for donuts for breakfast this morning but I haven't heard from him yet about what time. Then we're going to our favorite place to wander around and shop. Then he's buying me shawarma for lunch. I'm so excited. I haven't gotten out in a while for an adventure. I haven't seen him in 2 months. It's gonna be awesome.

Share 1 thing you learned this week.

“Shall I tell you the secret of the true scholar? It is this: Every man I meet is my master in some point, and in that, I learn from him.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

We’re constantly learning new things. Whether we seek out information or happen upon it, we learn new things every day. These lessons could be something concrete, such as your new friend’s birthday or a fun fact about your favorite animal, or something more abstract, like a hard truth or valuable life lesson.

What did you learn this week? Maybe you gained more insight into yourself when one of your values was tested. Or you might have received a long-awaited diagnosis (amazing!) and set out to learn as much as you could about your health condition.

Whatever lesson, factoid, or fascinating bit of info you learned this week, take a moment to share your newfound knowledge!

What’s your favorite way to celebrate accomplishments?

When you achieve an accomplishment, it’s OK to be proud of yourself and celebrate — in fact, we highly encourage it. 🥳

Mighty staffer @xokat rarely orders takeout, so she’s a big fan of splurging on one of her favorites: Neapolitan-style pizza, chicken and dumplings, sushi, sour gummy candy, or tacos! She also loves to clear her head after accomplishing something that’s been taking up a lot of brainspace, and will scoop up her dog and drive to a nearby metropark for a leisurely walk on a shaded path.

How do you like to celebrate your wins?

What’s a goal that you’re working toward right now? What progress have you made so far?

Every step, change, or shift you make toward a goal is significant, even if it’s small. Progress is progress after all.

What’s a goal that you’re currently working on? What have you achieved so far? Are there any roadblocks in your way?

Mighty staffer @xokat has a goal this year of polishing a picture book manuscript that she’s been working on for over a year and just can’t get quite right (even editors have said so). After some time away from it — always her go-to trick for writer’s block! — she feels ready to dive back in, even if it means starting over.

Now it’s your turn. Let’s cheer one another on in the comments below!

TRUE or FALSE: It’s easy for me to celebrate my small wins.

🎊 Cue the confetti! 🎊

Our self-care theme for this week is small wins! Whether that’s simply getting out of bed, finally getting to a task you’ve been putting off, or slowing down, taking your time, and pacing yourself on a high-symptom day, identifying and achieving a win (no matter how small) is worth celebrating.

Do you find it easy to celebrate those victories in the first place? Or is that something you struggle with?

Start off this week’s challenge by sharing your thoughts in the comments below!

Dinner tonight was delicious

It's definitely not a pretty pork chop but oh my goodness it's delicious! I marinated it in buffalo wild wings brand garlic Parmesan sauce for the whole day. It came out so tender and flavorful. I'm letting the one I made for my ex girlfriend cool so I can put it in the fridge. I wish I had veggies for sides. I'm gonna get plenty of frozen broccoli on the 11th.
